Using case logs as evidence of competency has been of concern to educational leads on the College ePortfolio for some time.
The case log function was always intended as an online version of a log book. It allows you to keep notes for the cases you see, demonstrating you have seen a good mix of patients and complexities. However, this can only demonstrate quantity.
When requesting a Work Place Based Assessment (WPBA), trainees will be given the option of linking the assessment to a clinical experience. If trainees wish to link a clinical experience to some reflective notes, supervision notes or some other activity, they can do so using the follow-up feature.
Trainees can add a case log to their portfolio by adding an activity.
